11.7. Choose a Boot Method
Installing from a DVD requires that you have purchased a Red Hat Enterprise Linux product, you have a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9 DVD, and you have a DVD drive on a system that supports booting from it. Refer to Chapter 2, Making Media for instructions to make an installation DVD.
Other than booting from an installation DVD, you can also boot the Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation program from minimal boot media in the form of a bootable CD. After you boot the system with boot CD, you complete the installation from a different installation source, such as a local hard drive or a location on a network. Refer to Section 2.2, “Making Minimal Boot Media” for instructions on making boot CDs.
